Summary
"Middle Eastern instability is seen externally in many ways: by crises afflicting governing regimes, the rise of political Islam, terrorism, revolution, civil war, increased migration, and the collapse of states. Countering common interpretations of postcolonial Middle Eastern development, Instability in the Middle East focuses on the uneven and unsynchronized pace of change within sociodemographic, economic, and political aspects of modernization. Drawing on the theory of multiple modernities, Karel Černý investigates the broader cultural, religious, and international political context of uneven modernization in the Middle East and tests his model using a time series of dozens of indicators over the past fifty years, revealing a long-term trend of cumulative change across the region."--
